Method Founders

James Chi

An avid climber, entrepreneur, and dedicated family man, James was born and raised in New Jersey, and has been a resident of Newark for almost 20 years. Not just fitness, but fitness as a family is a priority in his life. To that end, James is thrilled to bring the rock wall to the iron city.

Min Chi

A superfit, supermom of 4, Min does it all from homeschooling the kids to running the business. An alum of NJIT and long-time resident of Newark, she is psyched about bringing her passion for climbing to her stomping grounds.  If it can be done, Min can do it. If it can’t be done, Min can probably do it.

Obe Carrion

Obe’s resume reads like a History of Rock Climbing in America. Obe hails from Allentown, PA but has climbed every rock from here to Ogawayama. He brings his pro skills as a climber, instructor, gear designer, and gym manager to the Method family.
